Charity walk raises over £2,000 for the Barth Syndrome Foundation

A huge well done to all 27 members of Team Eclipse, who recently completed the Jane Tomlinson’s Walk for All “Blockbuster” charity hike.

The Blockbuster event saw hundreds of participants take on the challenge of a 14-mile hike in the Yorkshire Dales.  The hikers experienced all weather seasons – from heavy rain and gale-force winds, through to welcoming sunshine – whilst tackling the arduous route which included a 418-step climb up Malham Cove.

Eclipse’s nominated charity for the event was for the Barth Syndrome Foundation.  BST is dedicated to saving lives through education, advances in treatment, and finding a cure for Barth syndrome – a sometimes fatal, oftentimes debilitating genetic disease affecting boys.

Team Eclipse raised over £2,000 for the charity, and would like to thank all of those who kindly made donations.  To show your support, you can still donate – please visit the Eclipse Virgin Money Giving page.

Human error was behind the forwarding of confidential plans from The Bank of England to The Guardian. The sender included the wrong recipient in the email and, ever since, autocomplete has been disabled and staff at the UK’s main financial regulator must now enter every single address manually.
